Millions of researchers and students currently use Mendeley.com, a free reference manager and one of the largest academic collaboration networks, to support them in reading, writing, collaboration, and publishing processes. Mendeley is an easy to use reference management tool with only self-help on-line tools available for researchers. However, in the last two years, with its integration with Elsevier, more varied support resources have been available for new users.
Stanford library has adopted and promoted Mendeley for many years and have licensed Mendeley Institutional Edition for more widely university-wide usage for the past 3+ years. Stanford librarians, such as Helen Josephine, have been providing and advocating a wide variety of training and promotional support services to ensure that its researchers, students, and other users would know how to best showcase the various Mendeley features. Stanford library partnered with Mendeley to study the effect of library advocacy on user adoption and productivity. Through a two-phased study of 9+ months, we examined and validated the effect of library workshops and promotions on researcher support.
